At the heart of every organization is a vision. For Adventist Health, this vision is our belief that pairing medical science and faith to inspire wholeness and health offers the greatest hope for renewing people, families and communities. Work began in 2015 to update our mission statement to reflect our purpose. Our goal is to empower our communities to be healthier.
Not only does Adventist Health care for its patients’ spiritual, mental and physical health, the organization also creates a strong, nurturing bond with its own employees by sharing God’s love and providing care when they need it the most. At Adventist Health, we believe we also should go that extra mile for each other.
Physicians, nurses and support teams coming together in a prayerful commitment to provide healing, hope and reduced anxiety has the power to change lives and transform the health care experience for entire communities. For the Portland community, Adventist Health is becoming synonymous with this transformation.

Dear fellow members:
The North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC) was organized 110 years ago to help members and local conferences share our Adventist message in the Northwest. That mission still binds us together toward a common purpose in preparing others for our Lord's return.
